Even if he's found guilty of murder, Raymond Lewis Perry won't be put to death, reports the Virginian-Pilot.
Before Monday, prosecutors had been seeking the death penalty in their case against Perry, who is accused of killing Norfolk, Va., police officer Victor Decker in 2010.
But Monday morning, they told a judge they don't have enough evidence to make that case. Instead, they're seeking life in prison for Perry, who already is serving nearly 97 years for other crimes.
The move comes one week after Commonwealth's Attorney Colin Stolle dropped all charges against Kareem Hasson Turner, the other man who had been accused of murdering Decker.
